 Elusive People

Anna Lisa Berg and Elias Anderson

John J. Berg's mother and half-brother came to America and they are shown living together in Ishpeming, Michigan on the 1870 census. That is the last record I have found of them. It's possible they died in Michigan before the 1880 census. I was told by one of my father's cousins (a grandson of John J. Berg) that Anna Lisa is buried in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. There were other people connected to the family who went there, so it is not impossible, but I have not yet found a record.

Photograph of President Roosevelt on Earl Chandler's ferry

Discovering Chandler Lines tells that: One family picture shows Pres. Franklin Roosevelt coming off the ferry after an inspection trip. It seems that the inspection trip referred to would be a trip FDR made to see the construction of the Grand Coulee Dam. If someone has a copy of this photograph to share, I would like to post it here on this website.

Bethany Lutheran Church Photos

It would be wonderful to add photos of events that took place at the Bethany Lutheran Church in Blue Mounds Township, Pope County, MN. If you have photos of baptisms, confirmations, weddings, picnics, or any other event please contact me and they will be featured on this website.
William H. Hancock

After Axel Berg died, his wife, Jessie, remarried to a man called William H. Hancock. He was a traveling wood stove salesman. They were married 20 Jun 1937 in Kasson, MN. From the little that Bud was willing to say about him, it seems he came from Oklahoma. I have done a fair amount of research trying to identify this person. While I have a person that I believe to be him, I do not have enough documentation to actually link this person to Jessie. If you think you may have any information, however insignificant, please contact me. The William Hancock that I have researched had at least five wives and died in Oklahoma in 1966.
